A global citizen science platform
to discover, share and identify wildlife
There is not much information about them on the web, but there are a lot of photos. The reference link I provided is my blog post on this fly, which contains photos I've taken of it, plus links to a few websites which have ID photos and at least some information on the species. From what I've read they are about as common in Florida as they are in Texas.
What a coincidence. I saw this bug for the first time today in my front yard on a sunflower plant. I took some pictures but haven't downloaded them yet. I'd be curious to know what it is too. I hope someone knows!
I changed this to a Sulphur-tipped Clubtail. Someone else pointed out to me that mine has the shorter hind legs with the yellow on them which the Plains Clubtail doesn't have. Other than that, they are nearly identical.
